Basseterre, St. Kitts: May 15, 2014. Under the theme “Let’s Quell the Storm,Take Bullying by The Horn”, the Epworth/Maurice Hillier Memorial Junior School is celebrating its 14th Anniversary of “No TV Week” with activities
running from May 11th – May 17th.
The initiative which started back in May 2000, has become one the school’s most anticipated activities in its calendar year challenging both students and parents alike to have one full week of no television as a means of fostering more social interaction between schoolmates, as well as parents and children in the
home and wider community.
As was noted by school Chaplin, Reverend Arlene Bruce-Williams in a recent television interview, “we are hoping this week could help bring families close together”.
“It’s an opportunity perhaps for parents and children to read together, to play games, to sing together, to have fun aside from just sitting in front of the television that seems to occupy so much of the children’s time”, she further stated.
LIME is proud to once again partner with the school in its 14th year of empowering its students, faculty and parents to look beyond the television and indulge in positive recreational and social activities.
